Water and the Industrial and Commercial Sector
Many industries as well as commercial and general business enterprises are reliant on a safe and secure supply of potable water. They also have responsibilities to ensure that the effluent produced can be safely discharged to the public sewer, or to the aquatic environment.
Such discharges will be subject to licence conditions imposing significant legal and financial obligations. The costs associated with the supply of potable water and treatment of effluent can be significant.
Consequently, a proactive approach to managing water can lead to significant benefits for industry through:
- Use where possible of alternative water resources
- Re-use of water
- Optimisation of treatment facilities which will:
- bring non-performing facilities into compliance
- result in more efficient capacity utilisation
- optimise capital spend - and
- provide operating cost reductions.
J. B. Barry and Partners can evaluate options that might be available and assist in developing bespoke solutions from concept through planning; procurement and construction. We can also provide expert advice and technical support to operators in addressing process difficulties and optimisation issues.
